Loved this recipe! Biscuits were tender and buttery. I brushed the tops with some heavy cream to make the tops even more golden with a slight crisp. The macerated strawberries also turned out beautifully. Good thing is I had to use only 1/4 cup sugar as the strawberries were at their peak sweetness. I posted a picture on my Instagram and tagged you. This one is going into my recipe collection. Simply Recipes never disappoints! :)
Can I freeze the dough to bake later?
Awesome dessert, perfect for spring or summer. I made my biscuits very unevenly sized, but everything was delicious!
These are the best shortcake biscuits I have ever made! Thanks for the recipe! it will be my go to one from now on!
I never fancied myself a biscuit but more of a cake strawberry shortcake person but I followed this recipe to a T and it was fantastic. This will be my go to and will make it again. Thank you!
Can you pre make the biscuits and store until the next day
Hi Jessica, you can make the biscuits a day ahead. To rewarm them, I would put them in the microwave for a few seconds.
I want the cake recipe
Hi, Velma! I’m not sure exactly what you mean about wanting the cake recipe, but this strawberry shortcake recipe calls for biscuits and that recipe is included. The biscuits are the cake. Hope that helps.
I wanted something that was not just a slightly sweetened baking powder biscuit. I read the recipe and saw some new ingredients (vanilla, cream) and a different shape than a 2 inch circular biscuit. Tried it and was totally what I wanted. Light, flavorful and pretty easy to make. This is a keeper. Delicious. Perfect for Oregon fresh strawberries in June!!
I love it. I half the recipe since I live alone and wanted to practice to make for my daughter when I visit in a month. I grew up in Florida and my mom who was from Maryland made biscuits. This was a wonderful. I did use half and half for the liquid but otherwise followed the recipe. I am a cook and not a baker..but watching the British Bake Off I have ventured back to trying to bake. This was easy and tasty…Thank you for sharing.
When I was a kid there wasn’t a day that I went to my Grandmas that she didn’t have strawberries made like this! I even ate it for breakfast! She grew strawberries and she would freeze them so we even had them in the winter! She would make whip cream and angel food cake. Many times we just ate them on white bread! I guess her strawberries are one of my favorite memories of my childhood…we also had them on her homemade biscuits.
It was fresh, light and delicious! Thanks for this lovely recipe. The biscuit was perfectly crumbly and the right balance to the sweet juicy strawberry topping and whip cream.
just out of curiousity — was the change from full cream biscuit, to milk/cream combo for health reasons, or taste reasons?
Hi MG, taste reasons mostly!
When my husband and I where dating, I made bisquics shortbread. Which he never had before. Because his Mom always used the” hockey pucks” for strawberries shortcake. He said he was in love with a homemade shortbread. Thanks bisquic.
I made it with the strawberries we picked this weekend. It was so easy to make and the kids loved it!
I’m so glad you and your kids liked it Natasha! What a fun activity to go strawberry picking!
Thank you for including the GF biscuit recipe! You are the best! Strawberry shortcake using biscuits is a favorite of mine. Happy Summer!
loved this at easter time when I was a kid my mom mashed the strawberries mixed with sugar and then either half and half or heavy cream turned mix pink and kept in frig. does anyone know the exact recipe for the strawberry mixture I am describing? my mom has passed the only recipe I didn’t write down of hers and my children want for easter. they have always had for dessert on easter sunday up until this year unless I find the recipe thanks for your help in advance
One cup of strawberries, one cup of sugar and one egg white: whip together.
Maybe homemade sponge cake would be tasty with berries, but those store bought things are just nasty. We always had/have biscuits. My grampa taught me to skip the whipped cream (only here!) and drizzle cream straight onto the biscuits and berries. Divine! As my mom got older, it made her so happy that I made ‘real shortcake’ when she came to visit.
I am 74 years old and my mother used to make strawberry short cake from scratch, haven’t had it for a long time, used your recipes it was just great thanks so much
You are very welcome Gil!
I’ve made these biscuits before from scratch: perfection! But this time I would like to bake the dough in a cake pan for a proper birthday cake kind of presentation. :) Those who have tried this, are there any alterations to the recipe, baking time or temp I should make for baking in an 8-1/2 inch cake pan? Thanks in advance!
oh, wow!!! Just made the biscuits from scratch… perfect results! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I grew up eating the Bisquick shortcake, but the homemade shortcake is so worth all the heavy cream and butter! :)
